Petitgrain Bigarade Essential Oil


Common Name: Petitgrain Bigarade

Latin Name: Citrus aurantium L. ssp. amara engl.

Aroma: The aroma is somewhat sweet and floral. It has a very soothing aroma with notes of fresh citrus and almost a woodsy but earthy herbal tone. On the dry down, I found a nice green citrus aroma reminiscent of unripened oranges with fainter floral notes. The final dry down had a hint of soft, sweet floral notes with a perfect amount of round herbal tones. Can we say heavenly emotional support?

It functions as a wonderful middle note in blends but can be used as a base note depending on the blend. This is truly a beautiful specimen of what an Italian petitgrain should be.

Aromatherapist notes:This is a very influential emotional oil. I enjoy using this particular essential oil in blends for stress, anxiety, focus, and even sleep.
